I believe this is the first picture of the 787 with flaps extended. Anyone else notice that the high speed ailerons both extend and droop to act as flaps?

A bit of a departure from prior Boeing practice, where the high speed aileron drooped a little but didn't extend, leaving a gap in the flaps.

Wow.. how big are the fans on those Genx engines.. they look enormous compared to the fuselage..

Lovely picture (even if it is an artist's rendering)



I don't care what you think of my opinion. It's my opinion, so have a nice day :)
